Description

One of the several downstream climbing areas on the Ohiopyle bike path (Great Allegheny Passage) in Ohiopyle State Park. This crag consists of two separate walls with a short break down between. Unlike many of the overhanging routes at nearby Schoolhouse and Maple Wall, Rivers End offers a higher concentration of bolted face climbs. The left wall is easily recognized by a prominent roof and some overlaps. The right side is vertical face climbing with few overhangs. It gets full sun in the fall and winter which makes this a great spot on warm winter days. In the summer there is plenty of shade to stay cool. A great pit stop on the way to popular School House Crag (don't be surprised when you end up spending the whole day here).

Getting There

From Ohiopyle head downstream on the bike trail apprx. 4miles. Located .25 miles before Schoolhouse crag, .50 miles before Maple Wall. This is the crag just before the (RE) - River's End marker on the bike trail.

If approaching from Bruner Run take-out, this crag is apprx. 1.75 miles upstream from the lot.

The approach to this crag is badly eroded. I went to climb when the ground was wet and it was extremely difficult to get footing. Jul 3, 2017
